Adele was 'inconsolable' over ex despite 21's success -

Adele once turned up at British presenter Alan Carr's house "inconsolable" over an ex-boyfriend.

The Rolling in the Deep singer is close pals with the presenter, and he has revealed that while she achieved global success with her album 21, Adele was still "cut up" about her ex-boyfriend and once stayed with Alan for days after turning up at his house "completely inconsolable" over the split.

"Adele stayed with me when she was at her lowest ebb," Alan writes in his book Alanatomy, which has been serialised in The Sun newspaper. "The album 21 had just taken the world by storm but you would never have thought it with how miserable she was."

Alan offered her his spare room for a rest and would leave tea and sandwiches outside the door but she didn't surface for days, leading Alan to worry she had passed away.

"She was quiet as a mouse, so quiet in fact we forgot she was up there, and it was only after a couple of days that I realised we hadn't seen her or heard a peep out of her," he explained.

Born in Tupelo, Miss. in 1935, Presley was destined for a career in music. For his 11th birthday, he had asked his mother for a rifle but she instead gave him a guitar. At 19, Presley entered a recording studio in Memphis to record two songs for his mother as a birthday present. Studio owner Sam Phillips liked Presley's voice and asked him to record a rendition of the R&B song, "That's All Right" for his Sun Records label.

The recording topped the local chart, and within a year Elvis' contract was bought by RCA for a then-record of $40,000.
